160 degrees is about the limit. I think this comes from tests long ago in closed cars in Arizona.

The heat will age the plastic faster and make it brittle, but many people in Arizona will attest to temperatures like this outside.

I would think an attic fan will keep it cool enough not to worry.

Speaking of heat in containers, I just received a box of 5' Aristo straights, and a fair amount of the wax had melted and screws were all over the inside of the box. I'm assuming it's from the containers, but it could have been storage by the distributor.

Regards, Greg
